zweikommasieben Magazine #17 was designed in an aesthetics of speed, but it became ultimately a reflection on acceleration and deceleration. This project was part of my diploma at the Master in Type Design at ECAL in Lausanne. More infos here.

A magazine is supposed to keep the readers attention by interrupting reading-text with quotes, images, large titles, white spaces. In this issue of the zweikommasieben magazine we did the opposite: we split the magazine into four sections: images, quotes, texts and ads. The contents of each section are linked to each other with a numeric system. This enables the reader to directly compare e.g. quotes from various artists in different interviews.

In this issue we were playing with gravity: While the main texts are "standing" at the bottom, images, titles and quotes are floating to the top and stacking each other down into the main texts, ultimately creating quite unexpected layouts.
